Getting Things Done Training teaches skills individuals can immediately apply to better focus on the most meaningful work, organize information, prioritize commitments, create mental space for innovation, and achieve stress-free productivity.

Combining research with powerful and proven instructional design, Getting Things Done (GTD) Training brings practical productivity skills to life for the modern learner – yielding improved individual effectiveness, project efficiency, meaningful productivity, team innovation and relationships. 

Who needs this training?
Are you always busy but rarely productive? Do you start your day with good intentions and finish further behind? Are you letting others (or yourself) down because you don’t follow through on commitments? If you are falling victim to work overload, modern-workplace chaos, and the overwhelming anxiety that comes from too much to do (and not enough time), this training is right for you. GTD Training uses a common language and system to help individuals, teams and organizations manage their mind, time, space, stress, and productivity.

Learn a system to reduce mental clutter and take control of your thoughts and tasks.

Learn practical skills to reduce decision fatigue and focus on next actions.

Gain skills that, when applied consistently to the right tasks and projects, create more stress-free, productive moments.

With productive moments, yield increased reliability, efficiency and effectiveness in the projects and moments that matter most.

GTD Training includes classroom instruction, learning activities and videos to teach you the skills you need to focus your attention, prioritize commitments, and increase personal productivity.
